Clothes (including shoes): Priority is always given to the homeless community and their needs. Stock is sorted and all items needed by the HandUp service is transferred directly to them. Additional stock is then utilised by our charity shop.
We have opened an innovative charity shop where alongside general sales, people on low incomes are able to buy clothes at discount rates under a membership scheme, as we do with some food through our Food Club.
The charity shop is also a vital part of the Learning for Living program and acts as a training provider for service users.
Income generated by the shop ensures the long term survival of the charity and is very successful part of our social enterprise business.
